No Costa Coffee for Bakewell

Plans for a Costa Coffee in Bakewell have been refused by the Peak District National Park Authority amid concerns that the establishment would harm the town’s character and put jobs at risk.

Costa Coffee have already launched an appeal.

The proposal to convert the former Bennetts store on King Street, Bakewell, into a 54 seater coffee shop was made on May 2 and immediately generated a negative response from business owners and residents across the town.

A a public campaign to oppose the application was instantly launched and 51 rejections had been received by the closing date of July 8.
